Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Nottingham transmitter area
It was wrong to retune your Freeview box as now your= will have lost all the channels that were already correctly tuned.
Instead, check all the aerial cables and connections for any damage. Unplug all the coaxial plugs/sockets and refit them, corrosion/oxidation on the contacts is the most common cause of your type of problem. Then check that you can also receive other channels on the same multiplex, such as Quest.

A reminder that there is a retune event on the 4th March when PSB3, COMs4&5 & the Local multiplex change frequency/UHF channel. The transmitter will likely go off-air shortly after midnight and be off-air for a period.
People will need to retune when it's back on air.
The final UHF channels at Nottingham in the order PSBs1-3; COMs4-6; Local are as follows -
C27, C24, C21; C33, C36, C48; C44. There are no power changes.
There are no further 700MHz clearance changes for the Nottingham transmitter.

Chris.SE: If you put "[Transmitter name] Freeview Transmitter" into Google the transmitter pages of ukfree.tv come up as the top link every time. Not only that but the freeview.co.uk site either returns nothing or nothing of any use. Add to that freeview.co.uk bury their detailed information on a button below the icons and then more information within a difficult to decipher spreadsheet.
Having just spent a day trying to resolve what signal information was coming from where initially against hopelessly out of date information from the ukfree.tv website for Nottingham, Sutton and Waltham perhaps the site admin could at least add a line of text at the top of the transmitter information pages that says so if there isn't the time to update it. Also have it removed from the Google search.

Whilst I sympathise with some of your comments, this is a help site where people can post and ask questions and ask for help. It has always struck me as rather odd that in these circumstances people don't read all of the recent posts on the transmitter page of interest to see if their query/problem has been raised (and answered) by anyone else.
As far as the Sutton transmitter page is concerned the UHF channel information is correct, the power needs updating to 20W & 10W for HP & VP but that's hardly going to be of interest or affect anyone except those that have good technical knowledge, as far as the average user is concerned it's a VERY low power relay.
UNLESS you mean Sutton Coldfield, in which case the main 6 muxes UHF channels/power are correct, the double entries in the table for COMs 7&8 and Local need correcting as do their power, but a lot of the information has been mentioned in recent posts there.
Both the Waltham Tx page and this one (post before yours) have recent posts from me giving the updated situation. Many of the Tx pages (especially the main ones) have similar comments from regular posters here where they aren't up-to-date and someone has had a query.
The site owner is the only one that can make changes as I think you've probably read and hasn't had time to even respond to some messages he's been left, never mind make the many remaining changes resulting from the 700MHz clearance. There's over 1100 transmitters in the UK and most of the data has to be manually inputted from OFCOM and DUK documents, a task I don't envy him!
As far as the Freeview site goes, I totally agree with you about the abysmal way in which the site is structured. When the DUK site (which was the place to go for the tech information) was merged into the Freeview site towards the end of last October, many of us found that is was badly done. I know I wasn't the only one that sent them a load of constructive comments about the way it worked. Some minor changes were made, but it's still badly structured. More recently they have made one addition which is of some use to those wanting technical information.
This site is about the only one where people can come and ask questions and generally get help from knowledgable and experienced engineers and other regular posters. You can try tweeting Freeview for help, but when there are significant problem they can take days to respond and when they do, more often than not they end up asking people to DM them a postcode etc. otherwise the sort of response you generally tend to get from them is instructions on how to retune!! I'll give you some links to useful places on the Freeview site which are generally up-to-date, although sometimes they can be tardy doing it.
